i really need a cad file of chicago if anyone still has one. please help
For future reference, if anyone is looking for a CAD drawing of Chicago, I found one online of downtown. East to West it covers Lake Shore Dr to Morgan St, and North to South, around North Ave down to about Pershing Rd. It has all of the street blocks, about 90% of the building footprints, and the highways. Grant Park is basically an empty space, but has the Art institute and Buckingham Fountain drawn in. Just shoot me an email at
poop876 do you still have that CAD file of Chicago?

I look for it for 1 week. Can send me this file if you have yet?
Thank you so much
